PROVIDING THE FILE FOR PRINTING
CMYK – model of the four basis printing inks, which are used in various combinations in basic proportions between 0 and 100% to receive the desired output colours. The basic inks subject to mixing are cyan – a shade of blue, magenta – similar to fuchsia, crimson, and amaranth, yellow – a shade of yellow, and black or key colour – a less-than-deep shade of black. CMYK is one of the colour spaces in computer graphics.
TrimBox – invisible container determining the clipping cut-off lines, which should reflect the project’s net format.
BleedBox – clipping area – this is the printed area of the sheet for printing spreading beyond the edge of the final project and rejected by cut off. It guarantees that the printed area will spread to the edges after being cut out.
Safe area – area near project edges, which should be free from any important elements like text, logos, notes, etc.
Overprint – function allowing for printing colour ink on a colourful background devoid of said colour. When the overprint attribute is on, it prevents development of a white shadow
Font – set of fonts saved in electronic format.
